Shouts of joy and celebration filled the NG Kerk Hall in Kleinmond on Friday, 3 November when crowd favourite, Die Wolwe were announced as the winning act of the 2017 Hangklip-Kleinmond Got Talent Competition.
However, claiming the judges’ favour was not just plain sailing. Especially with acts like the sensational Jordan, Dancing Divas, Overdose, Zuko, Colin and Team, Flowdrop and Colin and The Kingdom Vibration all vying for that coveted top spot.
Made up of a group of local lads, Die Wolwe had the audience spellbound and thoroughly entertained with their spirited dance moves and witty rap jingles. All of which saw them coming up trumps, and putting dance and rap duo Overdose and Colin and The Kingdom Vibration in second and third place respectively.
Additional entertainment was provided by guest artists MP, Ray, Top Deck, Sisterhood, and Fairytales. Putting in a special appearance was the popular Kleinmond Acapella group made up of the lovely Ziyandi, Zizi, and TFT.
Also in attendance were Overstrand’s Cllr Grant Cohen of Ward 9 (Kleinmond) and Senior Manager Desmond Lakey.
The fun-filled event drew to a close with Die Wolwe taking in their new-found fame and posing confidently for the media, while their adoring fans cheered on appreciatively in the background.
